Canning Fish !


Well, I was told that canned trout was better than Tuna or Salmon so I decided to give it a try !
Cody is constantly fishing so I had him bring some Trout. I had enought for three pint jars for a sample. You put the rinsed off Trout in the jars, add 1/2 tsp of canning salt and 1 tsp of Catalina salad dressing...Yes , Catalina salad dressing...then you process with 10 pounds of pressure for 90 min...
Well, Madeline who is the fish lover pronounced it delicious! It was just as good as Salmon, although I thought the texture was softer. It is certainly alot cheaper ! We will now can fish
until next time...

Canning fish! Wow - I'm impressed. You guys (and Tracy) are so self-sufficient. At least you know where your food is coming from and that it's fresh and without chemicals! K

Well, actually fish and most meat is really easy to can...I have one daughter who will eat it every day if I have it (salmon) and I can't afford it! It is getting crazy with the food contamination so I feel better raising what I can. We are an organic farm so we know what is here! You have a garden every year don't you?
